Cork Pad Installation:
  1. Throughly clean the board deck with alcohol or similar. Make sure no rest of wax is present. Avoid industrial cleaners.
  2. Before starting, arrange traction layout. PRO TIP: We recommend standing next to the board with your stance or lining up and older board to copy the front foot location.
  3. Use the stringer or mark the center of the board with a pencil.
  4. Start with the first central part. Peel off the adhesive backing on one end (we recommend from the top) and start applying without stretching. PRO TIP: One of the properties of the material is that it’s quite elastic, so do not stretch it during installation.
  5. Then side parts ensuring even gaps on each side. Align at the top and try again not to stretch the material to guarantee even lengths. PRO TIP: Use the HexaTraction spacer.
  6. Apply pressure on all the edges.
  7. Wait for some hours and go surf.
